Over the last several months I have bought, subscribed, and been gifted some really great products. So, I wanted to share three of them with all of you!! Sometimes, it’s nice to have a review from a person who has no endorsement ties. Plus, some of you have asked me to keep you informed on my experience. So here goes!!
Felix Gray Glasses
I came across this company on accident when I was scrolling through Instagram. I was intrigued by the idea of a glasses that could filter harmful blue light from computers, phones, and tablets. Disclaimer: I do not currently have prescription glasses so for me these are just for filtering the blue light (you can get them with a reading prescription if you need).
I have a job that requires a decent amount of “screen time”coupled with working on the blog and looking at my phone throughout the day. All said and done I’m spending a lot of time staring at a digital screen. Felix Gray glasses help to alleviate digital eye strain by filtering the blue light rays from our electronics. Have you ever had digital eye strain? Would you know if you did? Digital eye strain can cause headaches, blurry vision, dry eyes, and overall eye fatigue. I checked all those boxes, except for blurry vision.
I received these glasses as a gift from my parents around Christmas time. I was so thrilled because I really wanted to try them out but was hesitant about the almost $100 price tag. I have the NASH design in the color Whiskey Tortoise. I love the way they look. They are the perfect size for my face and stay on the bridge of my nose without falling. At last check, this style and color are sold out but there are several other options!
When I started using them it took me about two weeks to adjust to wearing glasses. If you already wear glasses then this won’t be an issue. I have worn them daily for the past 3 months and they have made a big difference as far as my dry eyes, headaches, and getting better rest at night. In my opinion, they are totally worth the $100 investment. I know there are other less expensive versions of blue light filtering glasses but I believe this is a quality company that has done a lot of research and product testing. Also, I had a great experience with their shipping so if you read some negative reviews about that don’t be scared away!! I had no issues!!

Commit 30 Planner
The New Year brings about resolutions, goals, and the need for a new planner!! Am I right?? I have always loved having a planner as it helps me remember appointments, birthdays, my husbands work schedule, and anything else I might forget (which is everything). So this year I went on a search for a new planner and came across the Commit 30 Planner.
There are a lot of options when it comes to this planner including cover color, weekly or daily pages, and STICKERS!! I chose the pink cover, weekly option, and of course all the stickers. The thing I love about this planner is that it doesn’t just keep you organized. It is also a goal crushing machine. It has pages at the beginning of every month where you commit to doing something for 30 days (or the length of the month). So for example, maybe you want to work out 3x a week, or save $300 dollars, or drink more water?? Sky is the limit. You be the judge. You can use this planner as a vision board to keep you on track to reaching those small goals (or big goals). These commit pages have numbered out 30 days, give you a spot to put down action steps, and a reward if you meet your goal.
I will be honest that my goals for January and February were not successful. Am I upset about it?? Nope. Because even though I did not meet my goals I worked toward them and I am so much closer to achieving them. Some things take time. And I am learning that is ok.
I would definitely recommend this planner to anyone and have enjoyed using it over this past two months and look forward to the next 10 and the goals I will work on and maybe even achieve!!

Magazine Subscription to Real Simple
Do you currently receive any magazines in the mail? Getting a magazine in the mail every month is similar to getting a package (in my opinion). It is something fun and enjoyable and not a BILL!!! I haven’t had a magazine subscription in quite some time but recently my godson was selling magazine subscriptions so I wanted to give Real Simple a whirl. I have received 3 months worth of this magazine and I really enjoy it. It also gives me something to do besides scrolling through Instagram or Facebook which sometimes feels like a time suck with no positive result. The titles of the last three magazines have been the following: More Calm, Less Clutter; Best Ways to Be Healthy; and Fresh Ways to Relax. Now who isn’t interested in one of those topics?
I have some favorite parts to this magazine and I want to share them with you. I like the “Your Words” section at the beginning of magazine. They ask a question like “What is your go-to-small-talk topic” and then people share their responses. It makes me feel like I’m sitting in a big group of women talking over a glass of wine. It also gives me tips!! And who doesn’t need life tips?
This magazine has recipes, product tips, articles, and beautiful photos!! If you are looking for a magazine that will add to your lifestyle or just something to flip through while drinking a cup of coffee then this is the magazine.
Also, this would make an excellent gift for anyone. It’s a gift that keeps on giving.

To sum it up, I loved all of these products. I wanted to share them so someone else could enjoy, use, and benefit from them. I hope this was an informative and interesting read!
As always, thank you for taking the time to indulge in one girl’s dream of being a blogger.
